DxS Ltd, a personalized medicine company, has granted DuPont Qualicon, a developer of science-based diagnostic products that can reduce the impact of pathogens and other unwelcome organisms in food and pharmaceuticals, a license to use its novel Scorpions® diagnostic platform to develop tests for use by the food industry.
